Soups are wonderful, versatile and personal. They can be simple and elegant, hearty and rustic, and most of all adaptable. Every good soup begins with a good stock: chicken, beef, vegetable or fish. Whether homemade or store bought, it provides the base for the layers of ingredients that go into creating your soup. A good chicken stock is simple to make—it only requires time. It’s a good winter’s-day project, as it doesn’t require a lot of attention once it gets going; it really just needs time to simmer and bubble away, creating a beautiful and flavourful start for your next soup.
